Don’t be spooked – but on Halloween night, there are several kids eat free (or cheap) deals at restaurants in Champaign-Urbana.
As we know, this year has been, well, different. If you’re looking for ways to make this Halloween memorable, there are certainly plenty of options. Dining out (pickup options are available, too!) could make this year one to remember.
Some of these options require costumes, so read the fine print.
We’ll continue to update these deals as they become available.
